The undergraduate program in entrepreneurship is ranked seventh in the country. The graduate program in entrepreneurship is ranked No. 21.

entre“This is another great external recognition of Whitman’s entrepreneurship program, and we are incredibly proud,” says Melvin T. Stith, dean of the Whitman School. “From our Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities to our immersion in the entrepreneurial opportunities in South Africa and the wide variety of courses we offer, Whitman is dedicated to fostering innovative ways of thinking through entrepreneurship, and we’re very pleased that our tremendous efforts have been acknowledged by two reputable organizations.”

The rankings were based on a survey of entrepreneurship programs nationwide. Criteria included teaching business fundamentals in the classroom, staffing departments with successful entrepreneurs and providing experiential or entrepreneurial opportunities outside of the classroom.
